HOW CAN DENTAL IMPLANTS HELP YOU?
If you have suffered from periodontal disease, been subject to an injury, or if you have lost a tooth or several teeth due to some other reason, dental implants are an option for you. A dental implant is a fixture that is placed in your jaw and which imitates your tooth’s root. The implant then can to hold a new, replacement tooth or a bridge. Implants may be used to replace one or more teeth, for example:
– Replacing a single tooth: one implant and one crown replace your missing tooth.
– Replacing several teeth: for those who are missing several teeth, you may get an implant-supported bridge that will replace them.
– Replacing all of your teeth: an implant-supported full bridge or full denture can replace all of your missing teeth.
